Dr. Phillip M. Porcelli specializes in the treatment of the nervous system and spine disorders. He understands the importance of treating the patients as a whole, not just their symptoms.

He received his medical degree from Western University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine in southern California. After completing residency, Dr. Porcelli joined Neurosurgery, Inc. and Kettering Physician Network. He was one of the charter members of the Kettering Brain and Spine Institute and was the first osteopathic neurosurgeon to perform surgeries at Kettering Medical Center. This enabled him to refine and develop surgical techniques as well as participate in clinical trials with well-known universities.

In his focus on spine surgery, Dr. Porcelli utilizes numerous surgical and non-surgical therapies. He does not believe in a “one-size fits all” approach to spine conditions: he knows every patient is different, and enjoys taking the time to get to know each one he meets.
